Situated in an atmospheric old Colonial house facing the sea. Convenient for Restaurants Local bars A gym The Colonial Heritage Walk The owners were most helpful and informative.
Only one western toilet. The showets were a tad dirty and the water temperature was difficult to adjust.
Breeze is run, for the most part, by three older gentlemen. They are really exceptional. Their knowledge of the community is staggering. The service is excellent & they're happy to help you get wherever you're trying to go. The rooms are spartan; but right for the price. The location is ideal.
Downside: i don't know why 'quality of guests' isn't included as a ranking category. There are a lot of really dumb ones here. After a few days I started to feel bad for the staff. We're in Mawlamyine, not Phuket. You'd think a higher quality of tourist would be coming thru; more educated, culturally aware, more patient off the beaten path (anon). It was opposite that - a parade of ignorance; day in, day out. Just dumb & helpless, blind & unaware. Always pushy & rude. Demand demand demand; talk way too fast. Demand demand; get what they want, disappear. The one thing they all have in common: they all tack on 'thank you' at the end, like they're all saintly. And soon as one needy tourist flashes thru dumps stress & disappears - another one comes. It was like that all day & every day; a parade of ignorance & helplessness. You know it's bad when even the French & Swiss [!] are whining like children. [If everything is stressful crisis, maybe you shouldn't travel]. I learned an important lesson. In Asia, English is the language of education & sophistication. In Europe, it is the language of spoiled privilege. Like i say, i felt bad for the older gentlemen after a day or two. They speak like 6 languages, between them. They survived Ne Win [!!] They're ardent Buddhists. They know everything about Mawlamyine. They're educated, eloquent elders. They deserve much respect. They're community pillars. The tourists treat them like disposable servants. Also: breakfast is kind of small. If you're a girl, or trying to lose weight it's probably ideal. But if you're trying to walk around & sight see in the heat, you'll be hungry again within in an hour [tops]. The breakfast balcony is sweet tho & they serve everything on fine china.
I thought I booked a dorm bed so was pleasantly surprised with a private room. Did ogre island tour with the famous mr. Anthony featured in lonely planet. It was very informative and interesting. Oh, and there was actually hot water! And staff was very helpful for onward travel info and friendly.
Breakfast was probably the smallest least creative since being in Myanmar. 1 hard boiled egg,1 instant coffee and toast. No fitted sheet on bed so sheet kept coming off.
it is the cheapest accomodation you can find in town, the size of the room is the only thing i would have prefered different but i chose the place knowing it, the owners are really nice and kind, the position is very comfortable, sunset in the river exactly out of the hostel, enough privacy, cafe and restaurants easily reachable, local market and the beautiful hill of temples at walking distance, go there!
wifi is not working really good, the rooms are really tiny but as i sad, it's enought and fair for the price!
